The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It will also host the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

Going to an AFL game at the MCG is the quintessential Melbourne experience. Even if it's not your sport, it's the perfect combination of a terrific stadium (is there a bad seat?) and a game that's really fast and exciting to watch (even if you have no idea what is going on!) played in its heartland. And if you don't... More

Also great to see that the food stands have food and move the queues through and its not that expensive. Really a great... More

The MCG is a modern day colosseum, and the best way to see it in all it's glory is when the stadium is full for a game of Aussie Rules football or cricket. Don't let a trip to Melbourne go by without a visit, especcially if you're an international sports fan on a vacation.

This is an icon for sport around the world - it was avenue for the 1956 Olympic Games and it continues as the home of both Australian Rules Football grand finals and the infamous Boxing Day test cricket match. Whatever your choices in terms of sports, you must go!

We always think of the MCG as just a sporting venue, but I recently attended a two day conference there and was pleasantly surprised. The facilities are excellent, including the conference rooms, dining areas and bathrooms. We were spoilt with freshly baked muffins and cakes for morning tea, while lunch was a selection of delicious finger foods and salad boxes.... More

MCG, truly the home of cricket. This stadium is an amazing place and must visit for everybody including non-cricket interested people. It is amazingly huge and the MCG Tour is something that takes you into each and every corner of the stadium including the players dressing room, media boxes, etc. The view from the top is scary! It actually is!... More
